Selecting the Right Floor Plan for Your New Home

dining-alt Granite countertops, stainless appliances, hardwood floors—These are probably on the list if you’re shopping for a new home in Richmond VA. But what about a place for the drum set, room for the sleepover, a 12-person dining room, or the 52-inch plasma screen?

Before you get swept away by upgrades and features, think about what matters most to you. At Main Street Homes, we’re known for functional design and livability on top of the luxury built into each of our homes. Here are a few things we suggest you consider when selecting a floor plan that best suits your family.

Where will you spend most of your time? Are you a family that eats dinner together every night? Will you entertain friends and guests often? Do you enjoy the outdoors? These questions can help you choose a floor plan that offers the layout you need. An open concept kitchen, family room and breakfast area could accommodate a large gathering if you do a lot of entertaining. A covered deck or patio can carry indoor living right outside if your family is active and enjoys the outdoors.

What special niche do you need filled? Think about what’s unique to your family and how a home plan can compliment your needs. A guest suite with a private bath can make hosting out-of-town guest simple. Is it important your kids each have their own room? What about a large bonus room or open loft to provide a fun, shared space? Will adding French doors to the study or formal living room give you the secluded area you need for a home office? The room is there in Main Street Homes, determine how you want to use it!

What are you bringing? When touring a new home, on paper or in person, what do you imagine in place? We all have treasured heirlooms, family portraits, and anchor pieces that will make the move with us. When you can envision those special belongings in a certain room or on a certain wall chances are, you’ve found the one!
